Sudatel plots mass exodus; African subsidiaries up for grabs

22 Mar 2013

Sudatel Telecom Group (STG) – which currently owns telecoms assets in Mauritania (Chinguitel), South Sudan (Sudatel South Sudan, Sudani), Ghana (Expresso), Guinea (Intercel Guinea, Expresso) and Senegal (Sudatel Senegal, Expresso) – is considering a widespread sale of its African businesses, TMT Finance reports. A source familiar with the company’s business told TMT Finance: ‘Sudatel is starting to think seriously about its assets, and is assessing whether it can continue to operate alongside the big players in Africa. It’s unclear if an exit would be on a case-by-case basis, or if [it] will look to sell all [of them] in one hit. Either way, it’s likely you’ll see some action later in 2013’.
